This post is somewhat different, but I wanted to show my view of a (quiet) friday night out. 😉
I took along my x100s. This camera never ceases to amaze me. So small, yet so amazingly powerful. The grain it introduces at high ISO’s is so fantastic that the only way to describe it is organic-like with that inherent salt & pepper look. This camera is so amazing in the dark.
Those are so nice…you are right…organic is the right word. They have a quality about them that is just so pleasing.
Not only did you capture good moments, the quality of the files is just superb.
I’m always surprised when I shoot at really high ISO’s with my X-cameras…they just don’t break down like they did with my DSLR.
The Fuji X100S is one of the best cameras ever made for mankind!
J–“Look to the Right” is magic–imagine capturing her waving to you? Or someone else approaching–just as you fired off a shot? Very pleasant to wake up on a Sunday morning in NYC, have a tea and review these images. Very fine indeed. Waiting for my new X100T to arrive, wishing it already had. Thanks.
I agree. Normally on my Canon 5D II I apply some noise reduction in post when shooting at high ISOs. But with the X100s the grain adds another dimension to a low light shot
I have never sharpened nor used NR on any image from a Fuji camera. If the ISO is too high and it looks less than ideal in color…a quick shift to B&W and it will look fine.
The “grain” definitely looks “un-digital” lol.
beautiful shots, great x100
Great set of images, and it really reminds me why I want a X100S or T.
There are so many great cameras on the market these days and of course in some “better” what the Fuji X100S can produce in a number of ways. I often feel that the image quality is more or less interchangeable from a lot of cameras. I can often pick images I see in galleries being from an X100S. Something about that sensor/lens combo for me.
To me the Fuji X100s & particularly the has a “thing” and visual personality that is more important than a whole lot of other factors that are used to measure cameras these days. I guess as a guitarist a Fuji X100S is a bit like a great Telecaster. It’s simple, in some ways it’s limited but it’s full of personality and nothing sounds quite like it does. I happen to love Telecasters….
Have to agree with ya, Jonas. I am still getting used to the capabilities of this little beauty even after 18 months! My favorite is the one of the woman on her phone!
After enjoying your images I eagerly await my X100T in November and my trip to London, Paris and Glasgow this January. Thanks for the inspiration.
Itarduous to seek out educated individuals on this matter, however you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
